Featherdale Wildlife Park is located in a residential area in Western Sydney and not very large, but it is well-stocked with happy and healthy-looking animals.
These swamp wallabies (Wallabia bicolor) are housed in a walk-in enclosure and allowed to mingle with visitors. Bales of hay and other food are placed in retreat areas where the animals go when they get tired of hanging out with humans.
When I made a second visit to the enclosure later in the day, a wallaby that had wandered out to explore the rest of the park stood by the gate and waited patiently for me to let it back in.
Red Kangaroos (Macropus rufus) are reddish-brown unless they are female.
Edible cups and food are supplied for the benefit of anyone who wants to feed the animals.
